Sep 08, 2005 — Operation Respite, a group from Cambridge, New York wants to house hurricane evacuees. The Washington County effort was covered in a CNN news report, and response was quick. Ten refugee families were supposed to arrive sometime today. But that's not going to happen, yet. Ted Bernt is coordinator of Operation Respite. He says the delay is not necessarily bad news. And it's an indication of how complicated and difficult the hurricane effort is. Bernt spoke with Gregory Warner yesterday afternoon.
